Lillie entered the new series as one of six new girls who joined the boys at Casa Amor and quickly caught Liam’s attention, despite being “happily in a relationship” with Millie in the main villa.
He chose to kiss her in a Truth or Dare game the first night, identifying her as the girl he found most attractive; before the two share a bed and viewers see them kissing properly on Thursday night’s show.

Millie quickly looked disgusted and walked away from Liam shouting, “What the hell are you doing ?! Kissing outside of challenges? “
Liam tried to blame Lillie, claiming that she “closed herself off to the other guys”, before admitting that he then gave her a chance to “compare the two”.
